Well, here I am finally with “C”. I’ve chosen a couple of things to represent “C”. First and foremost, of course is…
Cozy Egg: You may wonder where this name came from. Several years ago, I decided to start making and selling bath salts and other bath products made with essential oils. I needed a name to sell them under, and wanted to choose something that would be a good name if I chose to use it in the future for other ventures. So, I came up with the name Cozy Egg. I participated in a local craft fair and sold a variety of products. You can see my table in the photo above. I sold bath salts, bath teas, salt scrubs, milk baths, gift baskets, etc. A friend of mine made soaps as well to sell under the Cozy Egg label. I don’t do as much with my bath salts these days, mainly due to lack of space to make them. But, I do still enjoy them and keep some on hand for myself.
Costume Design: When I was at school, I came really close to going into Costume Design rather than Art History, although I think the two sort of go hand in hand. I have such a love of movies and of costuming, that I think it would have been a great fit. But, Renaissance Woman though I may be, I guess I can’t do everything. I thought I’d share with you a few examples that I like.
’tis the season – I thought I’d choose two from Bram Stoker’s Dracula.
I’m such a sucker for a red dress.
And Lucy’s Snake Dress.
Another favorite movie, The Age of Innocence.
And of course, Marie Antoinette – love this photo.
There’s a little more about me, oh and one more thing… I’ve got some more Halloween decorating photos from my house over at the other blog, cozystyle.
I am grateful for my love of beauty.
